St.Truiden vs Gent
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
The Buffalos have been one of the best teams in the league for the past several years, and they had finished runners-up in the latest campaign – thus qualifying for the Champions League.
They easily were the best team in the whole league the last year in terms of offense, and if they had a bit more disciplined defense, they easily would have run away with the title.
After the miss in 2019, they are determined to make amends, and need a strong win in this opener to set pace for their quest.
The Canaries meanwhile had ended up in the bottom tier of the table, and have a very inferior h2h record against this foe as well.
As such, expect Gent to post a win this Sunday.
St.Truiden vs Gent: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 4-1 win for Jess Thorup’s men.
- They had recorded ten of the previous fourteen wins.
- They had also scored two or more goals in six of the former eight clashes.
- At this stadium, the guests had registered nine of the preceding thirteen wins.
St.Truiden vs Gent: Prediction
The Canaries are on a four-match winless run in official games, and they had lost three of those as well. In addition, they had conceded three or more goals in two of those fixtures, while failing to score in all but one match.
Going on, they had a total of four wins all through the past season, and were one of the worst overall squads in 2019.
On the other hand, their opposite number were the best team in the Jupiler League after Club Brugge, and had scored the most number of goals as well.
Furthermore, they have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue.
Taking into account these observations, expect a winning performance from Gent in their opener.
